Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was fined $100,000 by the NFL, which announced that it will also consider modifying or taking away draft picks.
Tomlin was punished for his sideline interference last week where he nearly collided with Ravens kickoff returner Jacoby Jones.
"Because the conduct affected a play on the field, a modification or forfeiture of draft choices will be considered after the final order of the 2014 draft has been determined," the league said in a news release.
"As I stated yesterday, I take full responsibility for my actions, and I apologize for causing negative attention to the Pittsburgh Steelers organization," Tomlin said in a statement. "I accept the penalty that I received. I will no longer address this issue as I am preparing for an important game this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins."
